More wonderful squares!
tmd, it looks like you and I had the same idea - I, too, used a dark purple for the easy square (really, it's not blue like it looks)http://www3.telus.net/public/rcesau1/octcrochet.jpg
On a different note - I am amazed at how many of you used multiple colors for the easy square. When I first started picking out patterns for October, I decided to keep the easy one simple and tried to find a pattern with only one color. Then, I decided that for November, we would try 2 colors on the easy square and get some experience changing colors, however, it's obvious most of you know about color changes!
